Raymond DeHond was one of 89 boys from Williamson that served in the military during WWI. Ray kept a diary of his experience in the war and had many photographs.
Ray's grandson, Michael Harland, found Ray's diary a couple of years ago and transcribed the diary into a document which includes Ray's photographs and Michael's research.
Michael will give a slide presentation which will tell Ray's experience (in photographs); leaving Williamson, basic training at Camp Dix, transit through England, stationed in France, occupation of Germany, and returning home.
Come and enjoy some interesting photographs and stories of a local boy named Ray DeHond. The public is invited. Refreshments will be served following the program.
